I grew up in Doylestown, PA. Throughout school I played Field Hockey and Lacrosse. I loved the social aspect of sports but realized I was not as competitive as the other girls on the team. One morning, I found Denise Austin doing a workout on TV from Hawaii and I was hooked! I began doing workout videos, joined a gym, and decided I wanted to be an Aerobics Instructor!
I went to Penn State and received a degree in Kinesiology in 2000. After graduation I managed Children’s Fitness Programs at Philadelphia Sports Club, taught swim lessons, and started doing Personal Training. I then moved on to become the Fitness Director at Cornerstone Health and Fitness in Doylestown. I managed the Personal Training department and taught group exercise classes. One morning in 2002 a wonderful friend and co-worker asked me to fill in for a Pilates Mat class. I did and it changed my life! I became a Pilates Mat and Reformer Instructor and have been teaching it ever since.
I believe there is something in Fitness for everyone. You have to find out what works for you, what you have fun with, and I love helping people do that! All of our lives get so busy but I think it is important to realize that your health is the greatest gift you have been given and you should take time everyday to move your body, drink water, and eat healthy.
I currently teach Pilates Reformer classes and work one on one with clients to help them achieve their health and fitness goals.
